1. What Wellesley Meeds. 

A. For Restoration. 

An Administration Building. 

Department Offices.

Assembly Hall. 

To supply the most urgent of 

these needs we must spend at least . .$1,740,000 

B. For Endowment: 

To meet the cost of maintaining 
these new buildings, an Endow- 
ment Fund of 250,000 

and 

A MrLLION-DOLLAR ENDOWMENT 

to make the salaries of our Faculty

[egesof our standing 1,000,000 

$2,990,000 
II. What Wellesley has to meet these Needs. 

A. Unconditional Gifts and Pledges. 
Two gifts of Si 00,000 each for the 
Million-Dollar Endowment Fund 

given through Alumnae $200,000 

Pledged or paid for the same fund 
by former students and other 

friends before the fire 30,000 

Insurance mo-^y, £** F-r :ipm"-it 

and Restoration 560,000 

B. Conditional Pledges: 
Promised toward the Million-Dollar 
Endowment Fund by the General 
Education Board, October, 1913. . . . 200,000 

and 
Promised toward Restoration and 
Endowment by the Rockefeller

This $1,250,000 has now Deen somewhat re- 
duced, for the College Authorities and the Alumna? 
Committee report to-day as the result of the ef- 
forts of Alumna;, former students, undergraduates

$1,250,000 
115,000 

Leaving $1,135,000 still to be raised. 
What Will You Do? 

Either as an individual or a unit in class or club? 
Whatever you do, please report it, either through 
your local Wellesley Club, or your class, or directly, 
to the Alumnas Committee. Everyone wants to 
know what everyone else is doing, and the Alumnas 
Committee can only act as a clearing house for 
this information if everyone reports to it. More- 
over, all contributions from or through Wellesley 
women are kept in one separate account by the 



Treasurer of the College, and it simplifies hi < 
counts and ours if all funds go first through the 
hands of the Alumnas Committee on Restoration 
and Endowment. 

"If it were done . . . then 'twere well il w< r< 
done quickly."

The burning of College Hall, the center ol ai a- 
demic and administrative activities as well as the 
home of more than two hundred Faculty and 

Students, makes necessary an expenditure much 
greater than its original cost. The insurance 
covered only the modicum of value left by the 
wear and tear of forty years. The new buildings 
must be of a safer and more modern type than the 
old one. The old combination of residential and 
aca lemie quarters must not be repeated and the 
old cramping economies of space enforced by 
growth must be avoided. These needs were recog- 
nize. 1 and itated I >cfore the fire when the campaign 
for a Million-Dollar Endowment for increased 
salaries was instituted, ?nd a public statement 

.n.cle :'p' m I ri a i •eaA CUB I ,.■::' rj ' 

and equipment. The preceding statement accord- 
ingly sets forth a plan of campaign, the success 
of which will not supply all the reasonable need : 
of Wellesley, but will furnish funds for its most 
imperative necessities. 



SONG COMPETITION. 



"<ine, two, three, sing!" and Song Competition 
was on. To make a short story of it, 1914 won 
t he prize for form, 1915 the one for the most original 
song. As Miss Daniels, President of the St. Cecilia 
Society, remarked, all four classes did so well that 
it was almost impossible to bring the balance to 
rest on any one side. It was clear, however, that 
in matter of absolute precision, oneness of attack, 
and rhythm thai was full of verve, 1914 was lengths 
ahead. The class followed their leader, Marion Mul- 
ford, literally as one. 1916's singing, led by Helen 
Kennedy, was very exceptional in point of tone- 
quality; Miss Daniels said that she had never 
he. ire] better. 

All four of the original songs were good. The 
Freshman song, led by Emma Barren, was, per- 
haps, not quite universal enough for an all-College 
song. The Prize-winner, 1915's "Ghosts," is 
without a doubt the cleverest, most original song 
added to the College repertoire in years. It is 
a decided relief after the conventional variety 
of "loyalty and fidelity" song. The music was 
by Margaret Dickey C.riffin, class song-leader, 
the words b\ Marguerite Whitmarsh. 



1915 LITERATI! 



There will be vacancies on the News Board, to 
be filled from 1915, early in September. Nomina- 
tions will be made to the class from those who are 
interested enough to compete. If you have any 
ability to write clearly and snappily, see the Editor- 
in-Chief for reporting assignments, as soon as 
possible, and prove your worth to us!

OPE N TREE D AY. 

rhere has been general jubilation over the de- 
cision to open Tree Day to the public again this 
year. Ii is a little late to advertise the opportunity 
widely, but we feel sure that the News will at least 
reach all friends of Alumna' and students. The 
College hopes to gain a good sum toward the Restor- 
ation Fund from the sale of tickets. We feel also 
ih.it she will not only he taking, hut giving, real 
benefit, in welcoming outsiders to this most beauti- 
Inl of her outdoor festivals. On other days we 
give way to other impulses — study, sport, drama* ics, 
excitement or mere frolic. Into the plans for Tree 
Day go the hest of our resources for artistic crea- 
tion. With our enjoyment of the day itself comes 
.in abandon of sheer .esthetic delight. We live 
in the midst of beauty all the year around, but the 
working out of these old outdoor myths in their 
natural setting, first awakens the whole of our 
emotional response to it. The pageant and natural 
dancing, with their blending of color, their grace 
ot movement, and their accompaniment of classic 
music, represent Welleslej art in its highest ex- 
pression. 

It seems altogether fitting, therefore, that we 
should share this festival with the outside world 
Art and religion, we are taughl . are common proper- 
ty-. If we as a college have something unique, 
something beautiful, to offer, how can we dare to 
keep it to ourselves? In spite of the privacy of our 
Tree Days heretofore, the idea has spread. Schools 
and colleges all over the country have their Tree 
Days, which are models of our own, on a smaller 
scale. It seems strange that the original Tree Day 
-In mid have reached the public only through these 
lesser reproductions of it. 

Perhaps it is no1 too much to hope that someday 
the price of admission may lie made at least less 
prohibitive. The present -it nation justifies the 
charge, we admit. We merely dream of a time when 
tin- ( ollege can. 1 1\ welcoming everyone to Tree Day, 
fill a real need in the artistic life of its community. 
\\ e lament sometimes the passing of old community 
fesl ivals, with their outdoor dances and music. Can 
we not keep alive the spiri I of them in our Tree Days? 
Practical difficulties are urged, to be sure. One 
is that we don't want a "rabble." To whom the 
term applies, we are not quite certain. Often we 
take 1 1 1]>- t<> Host on pail ion lark to teach some kind 
of "rabbit ."and try I o bring a little beauty into their 
live-. Why keep them away from the chance to see 
beauty in practice as well as in theory? 

Colleges are too much criticized for their self- 

suffii ien< > . and utter aloofness from the every-day 
world W ' an accused of bottling up our "culture" 
foi our own particular pleasure, instead of pouring 
out the benefits ol it where it is desired. There are 

residents in Wellesley who have watched the College 

grow from its earliest years, who have never seen 
[Yei Day in its later development. Theyoughtto 

hare it wit h u is a i 01 possession. 

ROOMMATE S, A VEXED QUESTION. 

Margaret is an "Atlantii Monthly" person. 
She reads articles about tin conservation of our 

nil resources, aim\ she keeps her shoes in 
straight rows undei the bed. Hal,, on the other 
hand, is ol the sp mmonly known as ( o 



mopolitanite or McClurian. Margaret and Bab 
didn't choose to room together, of course ('though 
sometimes antitheses doi; after the fire they were 
just "put." Then came the interesting period, the 
period of adjustments. It was a dynamic time; and 
it shook our editorial pen so. that the pen com- 
menced to write quite of itself. 

Conditions in the dormitories this spring have 
been a bit tense, we all know; and we realize that 
they are likely to be almost as much so next year. 
It is all very well to cry, with young enthusiasm in 
your eyes, "Mind triumphs over matter! Mere 
physical discomforts can't disable searchers after 
knowledge." 

It is all very well to room with a Cosmopolitanite 
when you are an Atlantic Monthlian (or the other 
way 'round) and to assure your friends that you are 
"getting along beautifully ; and even if we didn't, 
isn't it all for the sake of Wellesley?" All of this, 
we say. partakes of the nobility of vicarious suffer- 
ing; but nowthat the springterm is almost over, that 
that we are too tired and too breathless to be phil- 
osophically cheerful, the doubled or tripled rooming 
conditions begin to rub a bit. Little discrepancies 
that slid easily off in April, gall in June. Isn't it 
time to be less heroic and a bit saner? 

Koonunating, from the very nature of the ques- 
tion, is one that must be handled w*ith super-polite- 
ness, we realize. It has the traditional wobbly chip 
forever on its shoulder. But for next year, taking 
into consideration the unavoidable doubling up, 
we must consider, not so much whether to have a 
roommate, as, who shall that roommate be? Is it 
better to room with your opposite, and so become 
more tolerant; or is it better to room with the girl 
who, you feel intuitively and gladly, is "your sort," 
a "kindred spirit?" There are manifold arguments, 
keen arguments, on both sides. To room with a 
girl after your own heart, a girl who has sympathies 
like yours, yet who differs enough to be a sort of 
piquant complement to you, is an idyllic condition. 
Each gives to the other, unreservedly, the fullest 
of her nature; and yet — and yet — we wonder if such 
a Iricndship would not narrow our loves, would not 
over-centralize? Can it be that here, too, we need a 
limiting system of "groups" and "majors?" 

On the other hand, we have Margaret and Bab 
rooming together. Every time that Bab slams the 
door, Margaret looks resigned and martyrlike; while 
poor Bab almost screams at Margaret's neat top 
bureau-drawer. Perhaps Margaret becomes less 
finicky as the year goes on, perhaps Bab approxi- 
mates the normal a bit more; but perhaps they do 
not. In either case, there is a barrier between the 
girls. Fond of each other they may be, with an ad- 
miration for the other's qualities; I, tit where inter- 
ests diverge so widely, can there be the truest sort 
of friendship' When Bab is happiest, she is rollick- 
ing in the midst of fellow McClurians; and Margaret, 
for her part, seeks out her comrade Atlantic Month- 
lians. Neither one is being, for the other, her po- 



tentially delightful and helpful self. Neither one 
is living up to the fullest of her abilities, neither is 
being quite honest with the other. Roommating, 
after all, is an intimate business, affecting you and 
your ambitions willy-nilly. There are fine lines 
to be drawn here and there, delicate judgments 
that, made swiftly, are to stand forever for you 
and your roommate. Roommating is not, it seems, 
a mere matter of convenience, of doing the most- 
urged thing; it is a problem, an ethical problem 
that each of us must see through for herself. 

CAMPUS NOTES. 

I. 

At the close of the present academic year, Miss 
Torrey ends her twelve-year teaching connection 
with the Music Department of Wellesley College. 
During the twelve years, the actual number of 
singing pupils has increased more than three hun- 
dred per cent. Miss Torrey has given her best 
strength, her keenest intelligence and her highest 
enthusiasm to the Department. 
II. 

"Isn't it delightful to hold classes out in these 
little open-air pavilions," remarked the visitor. 
What she was looking at was our "elevator table." 
Now we have a brand n;w bulletin, next to Music 
Hall, spacious and well-roofed. In it are boards 
with reading-matter to suit every taste — Seniors, 
the athletic, those who would be entertained, or 
those who have lost and found umbrellas. Consult 
it every morning after breakfast: "There's a reason." 
III. 

The Department of Geology and Geography 
cordially invites all members of the College to in- 
spect two exhibitions of geographical material 
which are being held under its auspices for the next 
two or three weeks. The first is an exhibit of the 
famous Vittoria Sella photographs of the mountains 
and glaciers of Switzerland, India and Africa, 
displayed in the Art Building. These photographs 
have been loaned by the Appalachian Mountain 
Club, and are the only prints in America. They 
are exceedingly interesting, got only from the 
scientific point of view, but also as beautiful ex- 
amples of photographic art. 

The second exhibition is displayed in the rooms 
of the Department of Geology and Geography in 
College Hall Annex, and contains a remarkable 
collection of maps, atlases and books for use in 
geographical work. This geographical material 
has been collected from various countries of the 
world and has been loaned by- The American 
Geographical Society of New York.

Association for the Improvement of Class- 
room and Corridor Courtesy. 

First of all, do you belong? It is really necessary. 
All the front families are doing it this year. 

Rule i. When the bell rings, don't be afraid 
of staying one minute overtime; it really won't bore 
your instructor. 

Rule 2. Don't put the top on your fountain-pen, 
or close your note-book the minute the bell rings; 
you might miss hearing something good. 

Rule 3. Don't hold mass-meetings in the corri- 
dors; the corridors aren't wide, and groups are. 
Besides, mass-meetings are against the rule. See 
Grey Book. 

Rule 4. Don't zigzag; it congests the traffic. 

Rule 5. Be useful; push the doors back against 
the wall. If you mash someone, never mind; she 
has no business to be halting then'. 

By-law 1 . Blow your horn going around corners.

IMPORTANT NOTICE. 



Unless notified to the contrary, students should 
take to examinations neither books nor paper of 
any kind. 

Blank books and not loose paper are to be used 
for examinations. These blank books will be 
furnished by the examiner in the class room. 

Attention is called to the following legislation 
quoted from the Official Circular of Information. 

"A student who is absent from an examination 
(or fails to hand in a final paper at the appointed 
time), must send a letter of explanation to the 
Dean not later than twenty-four hours after the 
close of the last examination of the examination 
period. If the reason assigned is judged adequate 
by the Academic Council, the student will incur 
a 'deficiency;' if the reason is judged inadequate, 
the student will incur a 'default,' or 'condition.' 
If a student fails to make an explanation within 
the time specified, the case will be treated as if 
the explanation had been inadequate. (See 
Part B, III 6.) 

"A student who has been present at an ex- 
amination long enough to see the examination 
paper will not be considered as absent from ex- 
amination." (See Part B, III, 6.) 



MISS DAVIS DINNER. 



/ 



The Art Building was festive with spring blos- 
soms and flowering plants on Friday evening last, 
when Miss Davis gave her annual dinner to the 
Senior class, the Faculty, and the Trustees. In 
the reception which preceded the coll.it ion, Mrs. 
Durant, Miss Pendleton and Miss Davis received 
the guests. Each member of the Faculty was ac- 
companied by a Senior. 

After the dinner the company was entertained 
by Miss Everett of Boston, who sang several 
delightful songs. Mr. Hamilton accompanied her. 
Miss Marion Long played a solo on tin- violin. 
The whole evening was delightful and the Seniors 
will long have pleasant memories of Miss I Luis' 
gracious hospitality. 

American lady, living abroad, will receive into her family 
young girls wishing a chaperone. Social advantages, out-door 
life, golf, tennis, mountain climbing. Girls may plan their 
own studies and itineraries. Address

PARLIAMENT OF FOOLS. 



IRRELEVANCY: 



A Tail That is Neither Long nor Mural. 
The Persons of the Tail: 

The White Rabbit, Kditor-in-C'hicf. 
The Jabberwock. (It Ins been suggested thai 
perhaps Jabberwocks do not have tails. For 
further de-tails we refer you to Carroll L. How 
to Pack a Portmanteau Word, or the Animal 
Kingdom as it Ought to Be. I 
Montesquieu. 
Tailless Persons: 

Alice-in-Journal-land, Sophomore member of the 

Board. 
Philonous, our mutual friend. 
Silence Fell (laconic but useful). 
Other characters, to be added to taste. 

Wag I. 
A spacious chamber, with windows looking on 
the ice-house; you are immediately impressed, nay, 
obsessed, with the utter desirability of the spot for 
a warm May Day. The room is sumptuously but 
unobtrusively furnished with desks, high stools, 
green blotters, and multiple small bottles. The 
atmosphere of the place smacks of the occult- 
alchemists' cells, Walter Scott, and all that. The 
White Rabbit is discovered drowsing on a high stool, 
with its hind paws on the green blotter. Perhaps 
it mistakes it for clover; we have not time for the 
question now, but it would make an interesting and 
illuminating subject for investigation on tin part pf 
the individual student. 

White Rabbit (yawning): Hasn't Alice tome" I 
sent her out fifteen winks ago, and she isn't back 
yet. Now I ask you, what can you do without 
the dummy? And on Monday morning, too! 
Montesquieu: But, pray, sir, hold a bit. I don't 
quite see why, when last I was at the court of his 
Persian majesty (vive le roil), we got along excel- 
lently without the dummy. If 1 might suggest, 
why not make it hearts? or even nullos! 
White Rabbit (sententiously) : Twaddle! 

[Montesquieu is evidently wounded; the Jabber- 
wock puts a silently understanding paw on his 
shoulder.] 

Jabberwock: There, there, old chap! You'll get 
used to the Board phraseology soon. And re- 
member, whatever comes, I understand. 
Mont (gulping): Thank you! But is the dummy — 
Alice (entering like a Jack-in-the-Box): Dummy's 
not rea-rea-dy. Write-up's no-not ready. Go- 
in- wit h-proo-oo-oo- 
Jabberwock (helpfully) :Woof, my dear. I understand. 
White Rabbit (cuttingly): You always do. Alice, 
run back to the Administration Building. You 
seem out of breath; probably kirk of exercise. 
You can go to the Bookstore and get some Par- 
liament of Fools, on your way. We need two 
yards and a quarter, I think. Get the snappy 
kind; nothing irrelevant, remember. It doesn'1 
wear. 
Alice: But — yes'm. (Fxit, with folded hands, I 
Knter Silence Fell with a Free Press. 

Wag 2. 
The same. The sunlight is hall an hour further 
along the Moor. The White Rabbit is alone, inter- 
viewing Philonous. 

White R: You were speaking of policy, I belii vi 
Phil.: Yes, but I can't remember why. 
White R.: You needn't, I don't; I never do. Ir- 
relevance is so charming, don't you know. It's 
so jolly artistic to jump from one thing to another. 
I find it excellent for my readers — just the sort of 
mental calisthenics so advocated by the best 



curriculum diagnosticians. Not hint; in excess, as 

Washington remarked when he forded the 
1 lellespom . 

Alice (w ho has entered unobl rusively I ; Wasn't ii i he 
Charles/ I remember a picl ure in my fifth reader — ■ 

White R.: How often do I need to tell you thai 
children should write and not talk. Do a Free 
Press. To resume, deal Philonous; as you were 
just saying so pertinently, the new plans for 
rebuilding call for out-of-door classroom pa- 
vilions. Now — 

Phil.: But, to speak ingenuously, my dear Hylas — ■ 
I mean cheese-dream — I beg your pardon, my 
dear Rarebit, — I wasn't talking of new plans for 
anything. 

Alice (nudging Phil, in the ribs, aside): Don't be so 
literal; it annoys Him. He is a genius! Gen- 
iuses can't be expected to talk sense — or is il 
non-sense? One thing I'm sure of, and that is 
that He is incensed. 

White R. (suavely): 0! are you back? You didn't 
penetrate bet on-, my dear. 

Phil (under his breath): To be is to be perceived. 
Ergo, she wasn't. Now she is. Curiouser and 
curiouser. 

White R.: Did you get the P. of F.? Six yards, I 
said; thai would just fill in. 

Alice (producing a parcel done up in moist , feverish- 
looking paper): Here it is, ma'am. Only, only, 
did you say six yards? I got only two and a 
half. There wasn't any more! 

White R.: No more! Impossible. Get it before 
to-morrow night, miss. As you were saying, 
Philonous, the African caterpillar cast — but do 
continue, — 

Knter Silen< e Fell, with a Free Press. 
Wag 3. 
It is electric-light. The White Rabbit, with 

tortoise-shell spectacles on, is sitting at a desk in a 

private room. The room smacks of the inst it utional. 

The only individual touches are in the choice of 

picl ures. To the left hangs The Dinkey Biro 1 , to the 

right, a bit lower down, a colored print of Hope. 

A timid knock is heard. 

White R. : Enter, fairy! 

Alice (entering, jubilant, a large and very feverish- 
looking parcel under her arm): At last, here it i- 
— six whole yards of Parliament of Fools. Quite 
enough, I should say; perhaps a bit left over for 
a ruffle. 

Whit e R. : It is well, my child ; you did noble. Maj - 
be they will laugh; maybe i( will tide them over 
the rough places. Perhaps it will be a balm to 
their draggled spirits; spring is such a tiring term 
for them. As 1 was saying, Browning speaks so 
feelinglj of "The twittering of white rabbits by 
moonlight ." Yes, you may turn down my bed, as 
a fa\ 1 11 . 

Alice (in awe-struck tones): My! but she'- .1 
genius. O divine irrelevancy ! (She tiptoes out . 
In the distance the White R. is heard murmuring, 
"Onward to the Light.")

ALPHA KAPPA CH I PLAY. 

Society Alpha Kappa Chi announces a presenta- 
tion of Gilbert Murray's translation of the " Medea" 
of Euripides, to b< given near Stone Hall, on 
Saturday evening, May 30. It is hoped that 
through the medium of an English version, some- 
thing of the classical spirit of the original will be 
expressed, although modern conditions necessitate 
considerable liberty of treatment. Wherever it 
has been possible archaeological precedents have 
been followed, and as few anachronisms intro- 
duced as possible. 

The society has been especially fortunate in its 
counsellors. The training of the cast has been 
under the painstaking and enthusiastic charge of 
Miss Bennett. The music which accompanies 
the chorus parts has been especially composed 1>\ 
Mr. Hamilton, assisted b\ two members of th, 
society. The costumes have been chosen after 
consultation with members <>f the Art Department, 
with a fine consideration for the general effect 
against the background. The firm of Derl>\ & 
Robinson, architects, has designed the stage-sel 
ting. The firm explains that it has adopted the 
simple device of an evergreen scene. Against this 
will be a painted set nc in two parts. One, a sky 
scene, is high up and set directly against the ever- 
green. The other is placed a few feet in front of 
the sky strip. In the middle of this is the house 
of Medea, and on the extreme right and left arc 
rectangular panels, symbolizing the city of Corinth 
in one case, and the harbor of Corinth in the other. 

Certain novel features are being introduced in 
tlu production of "Medea," features which the 
society hope will add an element of interest and 
pleasure. A. W.

JORDAN MARSH COMPANY 

The Heart of Boston's Shopping District 



Mrs. Prince, of the Union School of Salesman- 
ship in Boston, spoke on Tuesday afternoon, May 
12, in Billings Hall, on the methods and oppor- 
tunities of this school. She was introduced by Miss 
Caswell, of the Appointment Bureau in Wellesley. 

Mrs. Prince said that the school had grown 
from a girls' club, and was formally organized in 
1905. By the efficiency of its methods in training 
girls it has gained the support of the business men, 
who now send their most efficient employees there 
for training, at full pay. 

The curriculum of the school includes simple 
arithmetic, penmanship, personal hygiene, Eng- 
lish, study of textiles, training in color and design. 

The demand for teachers from this school great- 
ly exceeds the supply. Graduates may go into 
department stores as efficiency experts or they 
may teach in other salesmanship schools. Those 
going into department stores have opportunity 
for greater advance in salary, while those taking 
up teaching, though limited by a maximum salary, 
have more opportunity for social service.

HISTORY OF ITALIAN PAINTING. 



Students of Italian painting will be glad to know 
that there has just been published a brief history 
of the subject from the early Christian period 
through the late renaissance by Professor A. V. V. 
Brown and Mr. William Rankin. 

Besides being the only modern attempt at a 
compact history of the whole subject written in 
the light of recent attributions, it abounds in 
brilliant characterization and appreciation, sug- 
gestive comparison, tracing of relationships between 
artiste and schools and the reflection of historic 
backgrounds. The text is supplemented by lisis 
of books and a full index to artists and paintings. 
It is fully and admirably illustrated. 

In spite of the vast amount contained in the 
four hundred and fourteen pages, the book is so 
light in weight that it can readily be carried aboul 
the galleries and so will serve as guide-book .is well 

foi reading and study. The book is now on 
lore. A short history of Italian 
Painting, by A. V. V. Brown and William Rankin.

NEWS OF THE WELLESLEY CLUBS. 

Note:— Secretaries of Wellesley Clubs are kindly but 
firmly requested to write on only ONE side of the paper 
when sending in reports of their respective clubs.— Editor. 

Chicago. 
The annual business meeting of the club was 
called to order bj the president. Mi-- Mae ( Isborn, 
on March 31, at the College Club. About seven- 
ty were present. Since the meeting came so 
soon after the fire, that was the great interest of 

everyone. Miss Helen Hughes of the Faculty, 
brought a most vivid report of her experience at 
the tire and just what happened at College Hall 
that morning. A committee was immediately 
formed to raise money for relief and to help in the 
rebuilding fund and Miss Susan Peabody was 
made chairman. There was so much interest and 
sincere enthusiasm that within thirty minute-. 
twenty-five hundred dollars had been pledged. 
This sum has been added to and it is hoped by June 
to send a pledge list to the College totalling five 
thousand dollars, which will include the name oi 
every Wellesley woman in Chicago as a doner. 

At this meeting plans were made to give a benefit 
performance. These plans were successfully car- 
ried forward and on the evening of April 27, the 
club cleared eighteen hundred dollar-, by buying 
out the first night of Elsie Ferguson in the "Strange 
Woman." 

On April 18 the annual luncheon was held at 
the Hotel La Salle, with President Pendleton as 
the guest of honor. An informal reception was 
held before the luncheon, giving everyone an op- 
portunity to say a few words to Miss Pendleton. 
After the luncheon President Pendleton gave us 
her experience at the fire and told of the remarkable 
rapidity with which plans were made and carried 
out, to have the necessary equipment ready for 
use after the spring vacation, ft was unusually 
gratifying to those so far away from the scene to 
have such a full report of the fire and its results. 

Miss Peabody reported that the pledges had 
grown to forty-six hundred dollars, which, she felt, 
practically assured the five thousand by June. 

Indiana. 
The Indiana Wellesley Club is now fully or- 
ganized with the following officers: 
President: Edna L. Swope Hughes, (19131, 122 
East Ohio Street, Indianapolis. 
Vice-president: Florence Rogers, (ex. 1906), 2004 
North Meridian Street, Indian- 
apolis. 
Secretary-Treasurer: Bertha Schnell, (ex. 1912), 
3050 North Meridian Street, In- 
dianapolis. 

There are twenty-three Indianapolis members 
and sixty-eight women now residing in the state of 
Indiana who are eligible to membership. An urgent 
appeal was sent to each one to join the club and to 
give support in every way to the completion of the 
Two-Million-Dollar Endowment and Rebuilding 
Fund. So far we have had replies from about half 
the number. 

The club plan- to have regular monthly meetings 
the first Friday of each month for business and 
social purposes. During the month of May we are 
planning to give two entertainments in Indian- 
apolis. 

We have labored under gre.it difficulties in put- 
ting the Wellesley Club here on a unified working 
basis, as there is such a difference in the ages of 
the Indianapolis members. However, we hope- 
to overcome all difficulties by our monthly meet- 
ings. So far we have had three meetings and are 
becoming much better acquainted with each other. 

The last meeting was in the nature of a May 
Day party, held May 1, at the home of Mrs. W. 
H. Insley, (Jane Williams, '94). Sixteen members 
were present. Plans were completed for the two 
entertainments to be given during Ma\ . 



The Indiana Welleslej Club wants everyone to 
know it is going to be a flourishing organization 

and will make up in enthusiasm what it lacks 
in numbers.

Die Milwaukee Welleslej Club was founded 
March 21, 1914, by fourteen Welleslej women. 
By reason of the fire, fund- for Wellesley were 
the immediate business of the club. By May I 
the club succeeded in collecting six hundred and 
seventy dollars. The membership had been in- 
creased tu twenty-four. 

President Pendleton spent two days in Mil- 
waukee, April 21 and 22. While in the citj -In was 
the guest of Mi-- Frances Field Bussey, president 
of the club. Tuesday noon, Mrs. Ellis entertained 
at luncheon for Miss Pendleton. At four, Mrs. 
Field and Miss Bussey gave a tea to the members 
of the Wellesley Club at which Miss Pendleton 
spoke. Tuesday evening Mr. and Mrs. Reuss 
gave a dinner in her honor. On Wednesday she 
spoke at the South Division High School. At 
luncheon she addressed the City Club and in the 
afternoon spoke at the Normal School and at Mil- 
waukee Downer College, where President Sabin 
and Miss Emily F. Brown entertained at tea 
for Miss Pendleton. 

The officers of the Milwaukee Wellesley Club 
are: 

President: Miss Frances Field Bussey. 
Vice-president: Mi— Emily F. Brown. 
Secretary-Treasurer: Miss Irene Smith. 
Recording Secretary: Mrs. Joseph G. Hirschberg,

New H wen. 

The annual meeting of the New Haven Welles- 
ley Club was held with Mrs. Harry Andrew of 
493 Winthrop Avenue, Saturday afternoon, April 

24- 

The report of the secretary, Miss Pierce, was 
presented to the club and also the report of Miss 
Lancraft, the recording secretary. 

Miss Griswold, who has been the president ol 
the club for the past year, was obliged to resign 
on account of illness and .1 pressure of outside 
work and her resignation was accepted with regret 
by the club. Miss Reynold- was elected to till out 
Mi— Griswold's unexpired term. 

According to the reports presented the club has 
raised about three hundred and fifty dollars the 
pasl year toward the Endowment Fund of the 
College and to help out the losses occasioned by

WASHINGTON. 
The Washington Wellesley Club was delight- 
fully entertained on the afternoon of Tuesday, 
April 28, by Mrs. Hughes, wife of Justice Charles 
E. Hughes of the United States Supreme Court. 
Mrs. Hughes is a member of the Washington 
Wellesley Club, and when she heard of the club's 
intention to forego their spring luncheon and 
devote the two dollars apiece, usually expended 
in the luncheon, to the Fire Fund, she immediately 



invited the club to her home t<> an informal tea. 
Each member broughl her two dollars to the 

treasurer, and in that way about eight \ -lour ilol- 
lai was realized. A very interesting account of 
the A. C. A. meeting in Philadelphia was given 
l.\ Miss Jessie C. McDonald. The treasurer •_■ 
a inosi encouraging report of the monej and pledges 
received for the Restoration Fund, and afterwards 
the (dub membei - disi ussed a number of plans for 
raising money. 

The members then adjourned to the dining-room, 
where Mrs. Hughes served tea, sandwiche , fam 

cakes and candies and a delicious fruit punch, 

which she laughingly declared was not the popular 
grape-juice varietj , favored bj the administration. 
An enthusiastic vote of thanks was tendered to 
Mrs. Hughes and an imitation received from 
her to come again next year. 

The club will hold a business meeting on the 
fifteenth ol this month. 

Fannie F. Herrick, 

Secretary.
